Doves are members of the pigeon family, Columbidae (order Columbiformes). The names pigeon and dove are often used interchangeably. Although “dove” usually refers to the smaller, long-tailed members of the pigeon family, there are exceptions.
The Mourning Dove is found all across North America. The domestic pigeon, a rather typical pigeon, is often called the “dove of peace”. The dove of peace is used to symbolize the Holy Spirit and is also used frequently at Christmas time to symbolize peace on earth. Bring some peace into your home by adding one of our beautiful dove ornaments or other gift items.
